I am having issues with our prints coming up light. We have gone into visibility graphics and tried to set up colrs. Even groups are printing light. Changing line weights doesn't help much no matter what we do. I check the VG in our linked i models. Is there and easier way of setting up our colors and prints?

Are you printing in color?  That could be part of your problem.  Some colors don't show up well.

Are you printing directly from Revit or through PDF then printing that?  If directly out of Revit, make sure your printer driver is the latest.  You might try printing to a PDF then printing that and see what happens.


In revit, all linework is controlled pen size by your option styles and penweight tables.   The defaults shgould have been close to what you needed.


Or have you not told us everything and what you are printing are imported or linked CAD files because that is a different issue?

Printing thin?  Or printing light?  Your line weights should be standardized.  If you've played around with them, odds are they're not in good shape.  An unreasonable scale will also make your line weights a moot point when a view is scaled to fit to a page for printing. 


What's fun about revit is that what you see in your screen is what will print on the page.  If you don't have the 'thin lines' button checked.  Do the screen line weights look like you want them to print??
